Contract, what Contract? Part Deux
Funnily enough an offer of significantly increased personal terms from Lyon has been enough to persuade Fearns to change his mind, and Gloucester have had to accept that, in reality, Sanctity of Contract is now meaningless.
Yes Lyon have had to pay compensation to Gloucester, but again that’s not really the point. Neither Lyon nor Fearns emerge well from this as yet again those with the deepest pockets appear to be able to induce breach of contract with impunity.
